It’s fall, and we all know what that means… Pumpkin Season! Jack-o-lantern carving, decorative arrangements and edible treats await. I’ve hand-selected a few of my favorite pumpkin ideas to share with you on the eve of this holiday weekend.
First, for the crafters among us, Martha Stewart teaches us how to carve lace patterns into pumpkins with wood-carving tools. I love this dainty and delicate take on jack-o-lanterns, and I also love the idea of using (or painting) gourds with pale, soothing colors.
This is a great idea from Better Homes and Gardens for a quick autumn table display. How fun would it be to grab a wide variety of candlesticks at a thrift store and match them with a variety of mini-pumpkins from a produce stand? In a flash you’d have an easy, eclectic arrangement that celebrates the colors of autumn.
I’m dying to try these Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Frosting from Ina Garten, for House Beautiful. You cannot go wrong with the Barefoot Contessa! Although, we all know what happened last time I tried to bake…Nonetheless, I’m giving these a go.
Happy Halloween weekend, everyone!
